Thanks for the review, was looking forward to this sequel. Risen was good but as you've mentioned if the sequel goes out of its way to include more fun stuff, it'll end up losing the well-defined and realistic approach of the original. I saw this with a few titles recently - an RPG not taking itself seriously isn't a good sign. Anyways, keep up the good work and bring us more RPG reviews

iFlame Preview, not review! But I'm glad you liked it.
This is by far the most divergent of the Gothic and Risen games, but all the core stuff is there and it's better off for it.
I get the impression they take development itself pretty seriously, but they also have fun in the process and that shines through in the result, which is important. A game taking itself too seriously is just as bad as it not taking itself seriously at all.

iFlame CoarseDragon It appears the original link here was not correct at all. I've updated it with the correct one, so...another look at the game for you, if you're interested.

I really liked the original and have already pre-ordered Risen 2. I like the Pirate theme sounds fun and a bit of a departure from the original. Once again good preview really got me interested in picking up the game.

Yep, kinda missed that.

I personally like games (specially RPGs) that revolve around a firm and defined storyline. Maintaining a certain degree of intensity is also necessary. But I guess you're right,being too much serious can be counterproductive at times. Despite of some issues, Risen was an immersive experience and as long as this sequel does a good job at that, I won't complain. Also the graphics looks exciting, hope the exploration parts are equally fun. Will surely keep an eye on Neoseeker for further updates. Regards.
